In Chapter 8 of the Webtext, you learned four simple ways you can use self-monitoring behaviors in the workplace. Review the table on page 8.3.
Self-Monitoring in the Workplace
1. Pay attention to the way others are behaving and act accordingly. This might mean doing research before an important meeting or simply assessing behaviors as they arise.
2. Read both verbal and nonverbal cues to assess the situation. For example, if you’re monopolizing time in a meeting with unnecessary questions, your coworkers might look impatient or uncomfortable.
3. Find a balance between blending in and being your authentic self.
4. Practice self-awareness so you understand how your own feelings and desires are influencing your behavior.
